A current (yet unnamed) work in progress created in my studio at The Banana Factory.
A few days ago I was inspired to paint a number of different of surfaces yellow. Golden Diarylide Yellow to be exact. I painted two canvases, pages in half a dozen sketchbooks, (my color books) and also several pieces of matboard.
The yellow in my color books allowed me to play around with different color combinations before committing to one particular shade of blue on the canvas.
Once I got a series of pleasing colors on the canvas, I tested a particular brand of black paint to see what it might look like on the canvas.
These paints are by jo sonja, Golden, and Liquitex.
